You do realize we already have a thread for covering game music on different platforms (e.g. Doomsday Zone on PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16/TurboExpress/PCGrafx/TurboCoreEngine-16)?

EDIT: Just took a listen to the song. It's not bad, but I noticed that quite a few notes were off. Also, just a suggestion: You could use a PCM channel instead of a noise channel for drums.

Thank you! Yes, it's a lot of fun.

I made this a while ago, so I didn't want to post anything too old onto that thread. But I guess I could.
EDIT: I was actually thinking of adding a cover of the Wario Ware DIY theme song instead.
I know some of the notes are off. I'll fix them.
I tried to use ripped PCM from S3K, and it wasn't loud enough. When I tried to make it louder, it just got really distorted.

Yeah... Distortion off of a D/A converter (for PCM samples) sucks. If these D/A converters had a built-in volume clipper, then this wouldn't have been an issue to begin with. However, they wouldn't be the D/A converters from the original chip and thus would be an inaccuracy emulation-wise. To put it simply, if the programmers back then had to cope with this then, we shall have to cope with it now. Still sucks, though...
